Kudos to Mark Stern for reminding us all that our primary job is not to harass and intimidate others but to help children learn.
On election day in April 2009, four newcomers challenged four incumbents and won two seats on the District 113A grade school board. A political “witchhunt” followed. Formed was a new committee to research the campaign trail rumor mill.
Thanks to Mark Stern, his public comment during June’s school board meeting crushed the controversy. No follow-up “rumor mill” meeting has been set. Congratulations, Mark, for reaching the stars and making a difference!
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible. —Anonymous
